Sorry, i fail to understand this. Since this failure has now lasted for 
several years i think it won't change anymore.
To my mind libraries are a valid way to organize things - i find it 
more convenient to have one file that contains all the bundled features 
than to have many files and a associated shared library that needs to 
be installed somewhere to be found by the system (where under Windows 
e.g.? in the /Winnt folder, or in pd/bin?)

Well no problem. It's good than that the flext build system can handle 
plain PD externals.
